is we have a unique opportunity to do something big. we have a chance to stabilize america's finances for a decade, for 15 years or 20 years. if we're willing to seize the moment. what that would require would be some shared sacrifice and a balanced approach that says we're going to make significant cuts in domestic spending. and i have already said i'm willing to take down domestic spending to the lowest percentage of our overall economy since dwight eisenhower. it also requires cuts in defense spending. and i've said that in addition to the $400 billion that we've already cut from defense spending we're willing to look for hundreds of billions more. it would require us taking on health care spending. and that includes looking at medicare and finding ways that we can stabilize the system so that it is available not just for this generation but for future generations. and it would require revenues. it would require, even as we're asking the person who needs a student loan or the senior citizen or, you know, people -- veterans who are trying to get by on a disability check, even as we'

in my book, they are too big, too corrupt, too destructive, too powerful. here in the u.s., there are basically five media companies that own almost all media. and in the uk, it's no different. rupert murdoch and his company simply had too much power. that's why we're seeing high ranking people, even prime ministers, even the head of scotland yard, tied up with this. they had so much power, they had to be kowtowed too. >> lisa bloom, we appreciate that. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> this scandal is reaching deep now into rupert murdoch's inner circle, and you can be sure that the man at the top is feeling the pressure. murdoch has ads running in seven british papers through monday saying, quote, we are sorry for the phone hacking scandal at the "news of the world." the popular tabloid he just shut down. and here's what he said in his own words. the scandal is widening to another murdoch paper, "the sunday times," and now even the fbi is opening an investigation. the allegations, hacking the personal phones of public figures, and the not so public, from murder vi
